Who We Are
Watch This Space works to be a catalyst and conduit for conversations and experiments in the always-evolving languages of art. It supports contemporary art dialogue in Mparntwe/Alice Springs both inside and outside a gallery space, encouraging, nurturing and promoting Central Australian and visiting artists. We are an ARI hub where studio artists and exhibiting artists intersect, housing a diversity of creative practices. We employ a Coordinator and specific project officers, supported by a Board of Management and Curatorial Committee that includes long term members holding a depth of historical knowledge about the ecology underpinning an arts practice in Central Australian contexts.
Why We Are Needed
Watch This Space is the only contemporary experimental art space in a 1500km radius; the only platform for local, interstate and international artists to create and exhibit experimental contemporary work in Central Australia. We are committed to this cause and have played a critical role in the creative ecology of Alice Springs and greater Central Australia over the past 24 years.
Watch This Space aims to:

How You Will Make A Difference
While we are supported by the NT Government to operate on a basic level, our projects are self-funded and are often undertaken with little to no funding. More assistance would mean stronger projects with more effective and influential artistic, cultural and social outcomes. It would mean more support for our artists and their work. It would mean so much to our organisation to provide as much assistance as possible to the groups and individuals whose practices enrich our communities.
